Helps children learn French, page 36 Favourite French word: My favourite word would have to be pâtisserie. I love the way this word looks and sounds, and it makes me visualise rows of beautiful cakes that look like works of art.
Meets expats making wine, page 30 Fondest memory of France: I was camping in a mountain glade near Méribel. A friend and I lay by the fire, counting shooting stars in the clear night sky and drinking local wine. Perfect.
Explores Auvergne, page 20 Best thing about growing up in Burgundy: Ironically, the best thing was leaving to study in Paris. Not because I found life better there, but because I realised how lucky I’d been to live in such a beautiful place as a child.
